Natalie - SMG Models, Seattle

Took some portraits recently of Natalie at her super cute home.  She has a great sense of style and attitude about life. I really enjoyed getting to know her better on our short shoot. Styling was super fun for this one! Super glamorous for sure. Her beautiful smile and kind heart will take her far. She also has the sweetest Holland Lop bunny named Chapo & OHMYGAHH, I did not want to leave him! I have the biggest love for bunnies and can't wait for the day I'll have one of my own.

The lovely Andrea Parlette and I shot together recently, using a cozy boudoir + fall feel as our inspiration. The shoot also morphed into a sort of "big city 1960s mod" vibe because of the great dress Andrea brought & her cute wavy bob hairstyle. The 60s are a favorite era of mine.  Special thanks to my friend Anna for letting us use her apartment's rooftop to shoot on! She has an amazing place in Downtown/Belltown, Seattle.

I wanted to use the metallic tattoos I had to incorporate into a beachy, boho, summer photo shoot. Only knowing Anna from seeing her modeling online, I was thrilled when she took my offer to work together on my idea. We agreed on her outfits, put on the metallic tattoos (selectively applying them to not overwhelm her already cute collection of real tattoos) and headed out to Golden Gardens. Getting to know Anna and talking about her life's journey along the drive was awesome. She is an incredibly joyous, fun, driven woman and I am empowered being around her. Anna is involved in the fashion and jewelry industries and constantly travels back and forth between Cambodia, the States & elsewhere. We had a fun time and Anna was a total trooper as the sun set and the temperature dropped. After our shoot, she graciously invited me to have dinner with her friends at the amazing Taiwanese dumpling restaurant, Din Tai Fung. I had a wonderful time photographing her and can't wait to get to know her better.
